The girlfriend of Aaron Hernandez has been accused of lying to the grand jury 29 times in the murder case against the former New England Patriot.
According to the Boston Globe, lead prosecutor William McCauley filed court documents explaining that Shayanna Jenkins gave false testimony while testifying under oath on Aug. 13 and Aug. 15.
Prosecutors believe Jenkins lied about conversations she had with Hernandez on June 18 when he allegedly instructed her to remove items from the house. They also allege that she lied about why she removed the items, her lack of knowledge of those objects, and how she got rid of them, according to McCauley.
Jenkins has been charged with perjury in the investigation and has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Hernandez is due back in court Dec. 23.
